Steel Blowfish (Rank 3) Edit

One of the stranger Dies Ultimae Gifts, this trick comes as an extension of the Steel Fur Gift. Like it, the Soldier's fur becomes metallic, however the metal is much harder with this version, and the Garou puffs up to three times his normal size! However, this also makes him so heavy that he becomes utterly immobile. But he makes excellent cover, and it is to this purpose that the Gift is usually employed. The Gift can only be taught by a Pattern Spider found in a car wreck in which at least one person died, and the airbag failed to deploy. Somewhat depressingly, the Gift is widely known.

Glass Walkers of the Dies Ultimae camp can learn this Gift.

System Edit

As with Steel Fur, the player spends one Willpower point and rolls Stamina + Science (difficulty 7). Each success adds one die to the Garou's soak pool; once the final total has been added up, the soak pool is doubled. However, while activated the Garou (who must be in Crinos, Hispo or Lupus form) is three times his normal size in all directions and weighs too much to move. Most Dies Ultimae employing this Gift first curl into a ball in order to not crash through the ceiling.
